Subject: [Boost-build] [Build] Unable to load Jamfile
From: Aaron Oman (aaron.oman_at_[hidden])

Hi there. I've got a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 and have installed all
the boost development tools with apt-get. My goal is to build a "python
embedded in C++" program, but I've run into a snag right from the get go.

I just want to preface this by saying that I've search for a solution to
this, but my searching skills are sub-par, or there simply isn't a lot of
info on the particular topic out there.

/usr/share/boost-build/build/project.jam:270: in find-jamfile from module
error: Unable to load Jamfile.
error: Could not find a Jamfile in directory '../../../..'.
error: Attempted to find it with pattern '[Bb]uild.jam [Jj]amfile.v2
[Jj]amfile [Jj]amfile.jam'.
error: Please consult the documentation at ''.
/usr/share/boost-build/build/project.jam:290: in load-jamfile from module
/usr/share/boost-build/build/project.jam:68: in project.load from module

/usr/share/boost-build/build-system.jam:248: in load from module
/usr/share/boost-build/kernel/modules.jam:261: in import from module modules
/usr/share/boost-build/kernel/bootstrap.jam:132: in boost-build from module
in module scope from module

Any suggestions? I get this whenever and wherever I invoke bjam from.
